OMHA Programming Update
Submitted By JLMHA on Sat 01 01, 22
Happy New Year.

A return to our programming will have some differences. On December 30th, the Ontario Government issued updated guidelines on what to do if you are exposed to COVID-19.  This includes updates to isolation timelines and testing protocols, please familiarize yourself with these new guidelines.

The OMHA is providing clarification on how that will impact upcoming programming and the procedure following a positive COVID-19 test.

The Children’s Health Coalition – representing Ontario’s children’s hospitals, mental health agencies and rehabilitation centres – has emphasized that in-person education is critical to the mental health, development and well-being of children and youth. The OMHA believes that these benefits are echoed in sport and recreation.

Throughout this pandemic, the OMHA has followed the direction of Public Health Ontario and regional Public Health Units. As of this most recent announcement, there are no restrictions limiting programming that are coming from the Government. However, the limits on spectator capacity have been further updated, restricting arenas to 50% capacity but with a maximum of 1000 people, whichever is less.

In addition, individuals who are vaccinated, as well as children under 12 who have symptoms of COVID-19 will be required to isolate for five days following the onset of symptoms. These individuals can end isolation after five days if their symptoms are improving for at least 24 hours, and all public health and safety measures, such as masking and physical distancing, are followed.

Individuals who are unvaccinated, partially vaccinated or immunocompromised will be required to isolate for 10 days.

Restrictions may continue to be implemented by regional public health and municipalities/facilities. We will continue to communicate updates with our Associations and participants as they become available.


Effective on our return, enhanced vaccine and exemption certificates with the QR code are required when entering recreation facilities. If you have not yet already done so, you can download your QR code on the provincial website.

 

With reduced contact tracing capacity, diligent self-assessment and responsible decision making about whether or not your player should attend an event is even more critical as we enter the second half of the minor hockey season. If unsure, please err on the side of caution. Missing a few ice time's is better than having to close everything down due to an outbreak.
